With writing, I want to try and redeem some of those hard stares I’ve given to people in the past; while I eyed you walking through the mall and made a mental note of your stonewashed jeans and mullet, or while in conversation with you it looked like I was paying attention, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the way you said that one word or how every other sentence you’d close your eyes through the whole thing like you were practicing some kind of meditative chatting. I’d like to redeem it all by immortalizing it in my work through character development.
GINORMOUS NEWS UPDATE: Horror author, and son of the late, great Ronnie James Dio, Dan Padavona will be writing the foreword to my anthology. Dan released his debut novel, Storberry, last year along with a two-story collection simply titled, The Island. This year will see the release of his collaborate effort with author J. Thorn and their book Shadow Witch. Dan is also finishing up the first few books in a post-apocalyptic series that will be released simultaneously in the next month or two. Dan is very passionate about the craft, and I am honored that he would bless me with authoring the foreword to my book. The book has a tentative release date set for March 2015. It will be titled “Night as a Catalyst” and will have approximately fourteen stories in it. The cover will be created by Ms. Abigail Larson. Abigail’s work has been featured in galleries throughout the US and Europe including London, Paris, and Madrid. She has an illustrative gothic style all her own that I feel will present some outstanding eye candy blanketing the pages of my work. Please stop by and pay a visit to Dan and Abigail; sign up to their newsletters, Twitter, like them on FB…the works.
